    Well you should start by learning at least a little bit of C++, you won't get far without it.

    The thing about programming / game making is that it doesn't happen overnight. Or in a week. Or probably a month.

    The usage and logic of C++ is much more complicated than more basic languages, which could potentially hold you back.

    My suggestions is to download and start fooling around with Visual Basic. (VB6 is a good start). Get a hang of creating programs, simple puzzle games, and then some multiplayer / LAN games.

    Then, try moving onto Java (Netbeans is good). It's somewhat similar to VB, but obviously, a little harder / more complicated.

    C++ is still up a ways from Java, but it'll help. Good luck. [​IMG]

    VB6 is old and outdated (ok VBA is based on it...)...better use VB .NET (avaible as free express edition from MS)
